hello! my name is nicola

and i am a freelance photographer, photo assistant, production assistant and graphic designer based in san francisco, CA.

currently, i'm co-writing, photographing and designing my mother's cookbook, heritage: celebrating family recipes - in part an homage to my family's italian roots, and also a love letter to the plants & herbs that provide us with sustenance and healing.

when i'm not behind a camera or computer, you'll usually find me making jewelry, refurbishing skateboards, cooking without recipes, tending to my forest of indoor plants, riding my bike or making chocolate from scratch.

some of my clients include:
green heart foods, ambrosia magazine, drift magazine, love fest fibers, rooted angel, bay area made, omie box, pour moi beauty, latitude 15, yerba buena tea company, SKI charities, michael musika
